After years of going back and forth to the hospital i had laser surgery which had no affect at all on my symptoms.The hospital discharged me and said there was nothing else they could do. I felt so helpless that i had to accept that this would be my life.Unable to work as i would be calling in sick all the time. I feel constantly exhausted and sleepy.I am in pain 3 weeks out of the month and when i do get my period i wont leave the house for the first 3 days as it is so heavy and painful.
I made the decision to go for a private consultation i am lucky to have a very kind mum who offered to pay.
I couldn't believe the difference!! Finally i was speaking to someone who understood!!This IS NOT just bad period pain!!!
All the symptoms he described were exactly what i have been experiencing.
Some of the things he told me i can not believe.
He said that the laser surgery(which i believe alot of women with endo have)is useless!!!It removes the endo which is visible but endo goes alot deeper and this is what causes the pain.So really this surgery is a waste of time.
He told me about research that is being done in Canada and that the best way to deal with endo is to actually cut it out. The results they have found are that 90% of women experience no recurring symptoms!! and incases where the endo does return it is after 5 years.
Fertility can be returned to what it was before the endo.
So really he has said that this op could completely cure me.
Has anyone else had this op where they actually cut out the damage endo has done??
I would love to know the results.
As far as i knew there was no cure. Though no one has ever told me about this op before.
I hope i havent been filled with false hope.
